Check to see if it will read other dvd's and cd's. It will probably read cd's but not dvd's. What has happened is typical of the symptoms of the drives heads getting out of alignment. The dvd will stop playing first as it requires the most accuracy then it will have problems with cd's as this gets worse.

Unfortunetly the fix is to replace the drive. This would be covered under any warrenty. It is also something you can do yourself. You under one screw on the bottom of the laptop slide out the old drive. Slide in the new one, replace the screw and you are done. A replacement drive will be $60-$90. You can find replacement drives from third party suppliers just by searching for something like insperion dvd replacement. They sell the same drive as sold by dell but the price and shipping etc might work out better.

To remove region code on Maxmade blu-ray player so I can play both DVDs and B-Rs which I have bought from various regions


Actually, you can use a Free and all-sided Blu-ray Player which can play Blu-ray/DVD disc, folder or ISO on Windows & Mac.

Leawo Blu-ray player acts like hardware Blu-ray player to play Blu-ray discs, folders and ISO files on PC to enhance your Blu-ray movie experience. As a region free Blu-ray player software program, it could help you easily play back the latest released Blu-ray discs without quality loss. It's also a free DVD player to play back DVD discs/folders, an ISO player to directly play back ISO files, a free video player to play up to 1080P HD videos and a free audio player to play even DTS-5.1 audio in lossless quality. During playback, this professional Blu-ray player software allows you to select/load subtitles and adjust video and audio. It even provides detailed playback navigation to let you fully control media playback.

Just for suggestion. Hope it helps. :)

I can't get my DVD to play movies in my latitude d610 computer


You may need to install WinDVD , Interactual Video player, or some similar video player software. The drive will read data CD's and DVD's with Windows , but it needs video codecs (supplied with the video player software) to play DVD movies and media.

My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

Dvd DOES NOT PLAY MOVIES AND UNABLE TO LOAD GAME SOFTWARE


The standard version has Windows Vista® Home Basic Edition SP1. This version do not have native support for decoder to watch DVD movies. Install a good DVD player like WinDVD or any other DVD player software. This will install the necessary decoder. Once this is done even if the installed trial version expire, your windows media player will still play the movies. However, if you like the software, make it fully licensed version on-line. Hope this helps.

New Dell Inspiron, wont play DVD's states no device drivers and ref TSSTcorp DVD 2B RW TS L633B


You need to use the software to play DVD movies. Try using windows media player to start the DVD or if the computer came with DVD playing software then try it. You can also check the Dell site and download the latest driver package and install the drivers. It might be missing the dvd rom driver. When you put in the DVD does it autoplay and ask you what software to use to open the disc? You can also go into the control panel and check the device manager. Check and see if the dvd rom is a problem device and/or try to update driver for the device. Have you tried different dvds? Maybe it is having a problem with just that DVD. Some DVD's will not play in a computer but will play in a DVD player.
